The Diversified Semantic Layer team catch up with old friends Timo Elliott and Derek Loranca, and are joined by Bonnie Brown for her first podcast, to riff on where BI Competency Centers are headed. Hear about good and bad experiences from the frontline, and how you can be successful in your BICC team.
If we could have named this episode appropriately, we sure would have. Today, we talk about topics ranging from ASUG SABOC to SAP Lumira to the lifespan of BI4.1. Derek Loranca joins Diversified Semantic Layer regulars Josh Fletcher, Greg Myers, Jamie Oswald, and me. And, my dog really ate my podcast.
SAP has recently published a new statement of direction as it pertains to the SAP BusinessObjects suite, following Bill McDermott’s vision for a Run Simple approach to building technology at SAP. We break that down a bit for the SAP BOBJ community.
Greg Myers and Josh Fletcher are joined by Shekhar Iyer, who is Global VP for Business Intelligence and Predictive at SAP, for a discussion about advanced analytics, SAP’s strategy and how SAP are targeting not only the data scientist, but business intelligence analysts and business users to equip them with predictive capabilities.
During the next 24 hours, Diversified Semantic Layer contributors Josh Fletcher and Jamie Oswald are moderating the next SAP Analytics Community Call entitled Self-Service BI and SAP Lumira with Olivier Duvelleroy, Senior Director, SAP Lumira.
